The wealthy program of the MeLa Final Event in Milano included the display of a Mela Exhibition, which was conceived as an opportunity for illustrating some of the main outcomes of the MeLa Project. The exhibition was set up in the School of Architecture at Politecnico di Milano. The display was articulated in different sections and distributed across various spaces. The path would start in the central hall of Building 11, where visitors would be welcomed, introduced to the MeLa Project topics and activities, and addressed to the two complementary sections.

Section I – MeLa Research by Design and Experimental Actions Situated in the tunnel space facing the patio of the building, this section would illustrate the “Research by Design” and […]

The MeLa Final Event was not conceived as an introspective moment, merly focused on the description of the Project’s outcomes, but rather as an opportunity for furthering the critical debate about the transformation of contemporary museums, in order to open new perspectives building on the MeLa Projects outcomes. The three-day event which took place in Milano from 21 to 23 January 2015 gathered a rich and heterogeneous interdisciplinary panel of scholars, practitioners and policy makers, who engaged in a forward-looking and multi-perspective debate around the challenges and chances that museums are facing within the contemporary global and multi-cultural scenario.

MeLa Experimental Action at Museo Diocesano in Milan: Critical Observations from the Second Test of the App Aimed at Rethinking Religion Representation (12 June 2014, Milano)

Through the cooperative effort of the involved researchers from the Design Department of Politecnico di Milano and ITIA CNR, the MeLa Project is promoting an Experimental Action in the context of the Museo Diocesano Milano, where an innovative app is being developed in order to rethink religion representation in museums.

On 12th June, the researchers organised the 2nd test of the app, which was conducted through the involvement of 15 people with various religious backgrounds. Through the use of the app, they were guided through an alternative fruition and experience of one of the artworks pertaining to the museum collection, a catholic painting representing a miracle about Eucharist.


‘Transfigurations’: The Forthcoming MeLa RF04 Exhibition to Reflect on Curatorial and Artistic Research in an Age of Migrations (20-26 June 2014, MACBA, Barcelona)

Within the framework of MeLa Research Field 04, the fieldwork developed by the Royal College of Art into curatorial and artistic research will culminate in the exhibition “Transfigurations: Curatorial and artistic research in an age of migrations”.

How are globalisation, digital media and changing patterns of migration affecting our understanding and experience of the contemporary work of art, and how are contemporary artists engaging with curators to think about the condition of the contemporary through their work, its display and collection? How are curators working with new forms of artistic production, particularly ‘immaterial’ works of art, that fall outside conventional forms of display, collection and archive?

This research exhibition brings together a rich group of international artists and curators:

• MACBA in Barcelona with curator Bartomeu Marí and artist Lawrence Abu-Hamdan • Bétonsalon in Paris with curator Mélanie Bouteloup and artist Camille Henrot • Whitechapel Gallery in London with […]

MeLa Research Field 01: Final Brochure Released


The RF01 Final Brochure, presenting the activities developed within the MeLa Research Field 01, is now available on the MeLa website.

The objective of the first MeLa research field is to explore the importance of place in European museums for the construction of identities. Researchers analysed key displays in museums that focus on historical and contemporary issues around place, identity and belonging with specific reference to the migration and movement of people. Additionally, researchers interviewed staff and visitors in order to understand how and why museums develop such displays and how visitors, including those with migrant backgrounds, respond to them. Migration has inevitable connections with some of the most pressing issues in European societies, such as the mobility of people, multiculturalism, diversity, equality of opportunity and social cohesion or division. Museums have the potential to play an important role in exploring these issues, and some do […]
